How to Download Web & Flash Videos to a Mac with the Safari Activity Monitor Trick
Chrome doesn't support Flash. Right-clicking in Firefox just brings up the Flash-options, etc. Another way to download with Chrome is typing "about: Right clicking and clicking "Download" works. Like Firefox. I was thinking maybe there was another option.. Thanks for the info. I guess this is the link to the freeware. For anyone who isn't helped by the above: If I tried to copy it, even when the movie was stopped, I'd get a "file in use" error. If I closed the window containing the movie, the. If I used the source code window to find the file, there was none. I solved the problem by using freeware program ShadowCopy, which can copy files that are still open.
Info for anyone else who has this problem. Hello all! This morning I have found a very fresh cartoon about the office workers everyday life. I recommend this for all to elevate your mood. I want to download one photo gallery from one webpage but it cant download. Thanks Sid, actually I tried this before I wrote the article. While it would when downloaded thru the remaining browsers. Probably a glitch, I couldn't figure out at that time. There are of course a few programs that help out Chrome with this job just like the many add-ons for FF. Well, Adblock is not for that certainly - but is there any sense in installing one more Firefox-addon just for downloading a few files?
For me not. If I want to make an offline collection of hundreds of flash games - I use an addon. So if I stumble into a good flash game or video once in months - I use a simple way but without installing another addon. You can find it in Google Chrome by typing "about: It helps if you clear the cache out first.
Type "swf" 3. Keep hitting F3 till you come to the swf file you need. Chrome will present it to you as a clickable hyperlink - so all you have to do is to right-click and save. Safari can do this without any third-party add-on. Double-click that entry and the file will be saved in your download folder. I use my own little method to download embedded flash media, using Adblock Plus as weird as it sounds.
One problem that is overlooked here is the fact that Flash files have the ability to load content dynamically. For instance, the swf that you save locally may need to load images, text, code or even other swf's in order to render correctly. If a Flash developer doesn't want you getting at the Library or ActionScript, you're likely going to be left with an empty container that does nothing at all.
This is usually the case with games and more complex animations or interactive movies.
You're right, I've seen this in many photo galleries sites, very bad. Anybody has a walkaround for this problem? But doesn't work for some sites, even with software like Orbit that are almost perfect for retrieving content from youtube, or dailymotion.
Yes, Mickey But what's surprising is that this fact is so difficult to establish. In fact, it's not even mentioned in the SWF specification doc which is pages long!!! The most simple way to do this is use the Firefox extension Downloadhelper. Easily download just about any media without opening backend windows. I also use the Downloadhelper extension for Firefox. It really is the simplest way to capture flash video - what could be easier than clicking the extension's browser icon and saving the flash file?
If you want to download the videos, FlashGot for Firefox does the trick.
